My first magazine "cover" (OK it was the BACK cover but its still a cover)


When I first met Norm, he told me that one of his goals in life was to be on the cover of a magazine. I thought that sounded like a pretty cool goal so I stole it and made it my goal too. I am currently winning. The Kona Major Jake ad starring ME, made the back cover of Bike magazine this month. Not too shabby for a stolen goal.

If you feel bad for Norm - don't. He stole my goal to compete in as many different world championships as possible and is currently beating me at my own goal. Norm has raced World Champsionships for Xterra, Ironman, Cyclocross, ITU Triathlon and Muddy Buddy (a team of 2 does a marathon with crazy obstacles and one bike between them). I have Mountain Bike, Muddy Buddy and Cyclocross World Champiosnhips under my belt but I kind of got addicted to cyclocross and stalled out and now I am running out of time. So I have been searching for obscure World Championship events to surpass Norm: Rock Paper Scissor World Championships, Extreme Ironing World Championships, Texting World Championships and the Mobile Phone Throwing World Championships. Maybe one of those will get me a FRONT cover....


Extreme Ironing World Championships.


Rock Paper Scissor World Championships. RPS for those in the know.

Your blog is hilarious, Wendy. Always worth a read. And yes, veggie Dave was laughing pretty hard as he took that photo...I know, I was sitting beside him, chuckling a little myself..but only because it is so unusual for you. We had just been commenting on your usual barrier finesse and then bammo...And now, I am laughing histerically at the image of you breaststroking though the XTC Nationals. You and Norm need a reality tv show. See you at Starcrossed.

I better be careful. The star crossed barriers are awfully close to the beer gardens...W.
